Cancer care excellence

Outstanding cancer care requires collaboration among multiple cancer specialists, including medical-, radiation- and surgical oncologists. Our membership in the Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) Cancer Alliance takes this concept to another level. We work alongside the best and brightest cancer experts to bring you leading-edge care and access to groundbreaking clinical trials.

  • First cancer center in the region using a system (SpaceOAR®) to lower radiation side effects in patients with prostate cancer

  • First cancer center in the region offering Varian Edge®, which includes a real-time tumor tracking system for more precise care

  • The largest robotic surgery program in the region, making world class technology available close to home. 

Emphasis on safety

When it comes to delivering safe, high-quality cancer care, we hold ourselves to the highest standards. Our commitment is regularly recognized at the national level. We hold numerous designations, including Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) certification from the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

Access to clinical trials

For decades, LVHN has had a hand in advancing cancer care through participation in prestigious clinical trial networks. This tradition carries on in clinics throughout the region.
